Rio Lagartos is quite an adventure, and well worth a trip if you’re ever in the area. It’s kind of what I envisioned Mexico to be like. More primitive, more down to earth, quiet and slow.
Rio Lagartos or Alligator River is a stunning natural preserve brimming with life. We saw dozens of different birds, sting rays, puffer fish, pike fish, even an alligator. But as they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so mostly I’ll tell you about our visit to the area with a bunch of pictures.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. We sure enjoyed the weekend. Total cost for a 2 day trip with 2 different boat trips was around $175 or so. You can’t even stay oceanfront in the states for just the hotel room at $175. It’s a fantastic area to go for just a couple of days. Mexico in general is already a pretty laid back place. These small fishing towns take it to a whole other level. It’s very quiet and peaceful, you can imagine the next Hemmingway getting their start in a small quiet town like this.
